The Power of Performance

Our program nurtures creativity, collaboration, and critical thinking, empowering students to become daring, expressive storytellers.

"I feel really proud of what we're achieving in the arts department at NEIA... it ties in really nicely with what we're trying to achieve here, in terms of giving students practical skills."
Tamara Smith, Theater Arts Teacher
